    Answered . No one here will disagree that it is frustrating to deal with medicare when trying to resolve lien issues. Don't forget, your attorney doesn't get paid until you do, so to speak. There is no incentive for him/her to want to let things lay still if there is another alternative. Speak to your laywer to keep up to date.
